Ltd. operating CIQB-FM (the “Station”) and its parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, related companies, successors and assigns (together with the Station, the “Sponsors”), advertising and promotional agencies, and/or the household members of any of the above are not eligible to enter.
The Sponsors shall have the right at any time to require proof of identity and/or eligibility to participate in the Contest. Failure to provide such proof may result in disqualification. All personal and other information requested by and supplied to the Sponsors for the purpose of the Contest must be truthful, complete, accurate and in no way misleading.

- CONTEST PERIOD. The Contest begins at 5:00 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) on October 2, 2017 and ends at 11:59 p.m. ET on October 27, 2017 (the “Contest Period“) after which time the Contest will be closed and no other entries shall be accepted.
- HOW TO ENTER.
- There is no purchase necessary to enter the Contest. Enter using the method of entry outlined below. No entries will be accepted by any other means.
- Listen to the Station Monday to Friday during the Contest Period (except statutory holidays) between 5:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. ET for the pre-produced Cue to Call to be played randomly three (3) times each weekday (the “Cue to Call”). Upon hearing the Cue to Call, listeners are invited to call 705-739-4101 (the “Contest Line”). The tenth (10th) caller through the Contest Line during a Cue to Call (each a “Contestant”) will be invited to play the “Secret Sound” game as follow. The Station will play an audio clip with a sound and the Contestant will have one (1) chance to identity such sound (the “Secret Sound”). The Contestant who correctly identifies the Secret Sound will qualify to win a Prize (defined below). If a Contestant does not identify the correct Secret Sound during the allotted time, the Cue to Call will end and the Prize will increase by One Hundred and One Canadian dollars (CDN$101.00) for the next scheduled Cue to Call. The Prize will continue to increase by One Hundred and One Canadian dollar (CDN$101.00) increments for each subsequent Cue to Call until the Secret Sound is correctly identified (carrying on to the following day, if necessary).
Once the Secret Sound is correctly identified, the Contest will resume on the next scheduled Cue to Call with a new Secret Sound, a Prize value of One Hundred and One Canadian dollars (CDN$101.00), and the process of accumulation of One Hundred and One Canadian dollar (CDN$101.00) increments will begin again.
- During the Contest Period, listeners may try to call in as many times as they like each time a Cue to Call is broadcast, but any Contestant who correctly identifies the Secret Sound and wins a Prize may not participate in any further Cues to Call during the Contest Period.
- All entries become the sole property of the Sponsors and will not be returned for any reason. Entries must be received no later than the end of the Contest Period. Entries will be declared invalid if they are late, illegible, incomplete, damaged, irregular, mutilated, forged, garbled or mechanically or electronically reproduced. Unless otherwise set out herein, no communication or correspondence will be exchanged with entrants except with those selected as a potential winner.
- Streaming listeners may be listening to a delayed stream of the radio signal, which may vary depending on the device on which you are listening and the speed of the internet connection. Sponsors recommend turning on a radio to the Station for the Cue to Call. Sponsors assume no liability for entrants not making timely phone calls to the Station due to delays in the streamed signal.
- If the telephone connection between the Station announcer and an entrant is not clear, such that the announcer and/or entrant cannot hear each other or the entrant is disconnected, that entrant may, in the sole discretion of the Sponsors, be disqualified and the Releasees (defined below) will not be liable in any way.
- Prizes. The total number of cash prizes (the “Prizes”) to be awarded to the Prize winners (the “Winners”) during the Contest Period and the value of each Prize awarded will depend on the total number of eligible entrants who call in and are able to identify the Secret Sound during the Contest Period. The total number of Prizes to be awarded could range between zero and fifty-seven (57). Each Prize consists of a cash prize of a minimum of One Hundred and One Canadian dollars (CDN$101.00). The precise value of the Prize will be determined by the outcome of the game at each Cue to Call and the cash amount accumulated.
- Winners are not entitled to monetary difference between actual Prize value and stated approximate Prize value, if any.
- Winners may claim a Prize at the Station’s Studios, located at 1125 Bayfield Street North, Barrie, ON., L4M 4Y6.

- PRIZE CONDITIONS.
- Winners will be responsible for all incidental costs and expenses not explicitly included in the Prizes.

Any unused, unclaimed or declined portion of a Prize will be forfeited, have no cash value and the Sponsors shall have no obligation to provide either an alternative or value-in-kind. The Sponsors reserve the right, in their sole discretion, to substitute a prize of equal or greater value if a Prize (or any portion thereof) cannot be awarded for any reason.
- The Sponsors shall not assume any liability for lost, damaged or misdirected Prizes.
